I disagree Matt. I use my WordPress blog as the one true source mostly (I can get lazy) & syndicate it to Twitter & FB. Everyone could be doing that. And I honestly don’t care if there’s a commercial motive, I just wish those that are hedging that way would say it and move on.

Because WP is a platform it “competes” with everything, and any one competitor you pick (like the ones you mention) seem irrelevant to a large portion of the current user and developer base. But it’s all part of the same flywheel. WP competes with Twitter, Insta, FB too.

My point was people in the conversation are using the word “competition” differently, and it’s not a bad thing. Through WP’s history what’s been good for community has been good for growth and has been good for the commercial side.
